Sizzling Chicken Sisig Recipe!!!

Sizzling Chicken Sisig Recipe!!!

Sizzling Chicken Sisig

Sizzling Chicken Sisig is the chicken version of the classic Filipino dish sisig. Traditionally this recipe is prepared with pork meat parts. In the original recipe onions, chilies and meat are added to a sizzling dish with butter.

 This recipe is quick and easy and can be low in fat depending on the type and amount of mayonnaise used. Check out my recipe for Sizzling Pork Sisig.

Chicken Sisig, on the other hand, can be considered as a healthier alternative because chicken meat is less fatty. This recipe in particular makes use of skinless chicken breast; it is low in fat and high in protein.

Adding chicken liver plays a big role in the success of this dish because it contributes a lot to the flavor of the entire dish.   Now this is my version of Sizzling Chicken Sisig. Enjoy!!!

1½ lbs. chicken breast, chopped in small pieces

¼ lb. chicken liver, chopped in small pieces

2 pcs. long green chili or serrano peppers, sliced diagonally

1 Egg

1 tsp. garlic powder

2 tbsp. soy sauce

¼ cup butter

2 tbsp. cooking oil

½ tsp. salt or salt to taste

¼ tsp. pepper or pepper to taste

 

Directions:

Boil the chicken breast for 10 – 15 mins. Then remove from the pot.

Grill the boiled chicken breast until it turns brown and a little bit black on is sides, do not overcook so that the chicken is still moist and not dry then chop into small pieces,  and set aside.

Heat the cooking oil in a pan over medium heat.

Sauté onions.

Add chicken liver and cook until the liver turns browns.

Add the grilled chopped chicken breast, stir and cook for 3 to 5 mins.

Add the garlic powder and soy sauce, stir.
